WHAT TO EXPECT

 

Queenstown & Bungy Jumps

 

The first thing that comes to mind when people think of New Zealand is adventure tourism. Queenstown has been dubbed the 'adventure capital of the world' - so it is no surprise that it is here where the Bungy phenomenon all began. It started in the 80s when AJ Hackett and Henry van Asch developed and tested Bungy cords, both convinced that people would pay to experience the huge rush of adrenaline associated with Bungy. After extensive testing and with the help of Auckland University Scientists, the first jumps were made, and in November 1988, the World's first Commercial Bungy Operation opened at the Kawarau Bridge. Nearly 30 years later, over 3.5 million jumps have taken place, and AJ Hackett now operates the 'world's most innovative gravity related products anywhere on the planet'. 

 

The Ledge Swing

 

Swing 400 metres above Queenstown and experience an adrenaline rush like no other! The Ledge Swing puts your destiny in your own hands as the ONLY way to start swinging is for you to pull the self-release cord

 

If you manage to stop screaming, make sure to look up and take in the very best views of Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu. There is no tandem option available on the Ledge Swing, meaning that it is a 100% solo achievement - you go glen coco!

You'll need to take the Skyline Gondola to reach the Ledge Swing - you can't drive up. There's also a few hiking trails if you're slightly fit, but we don't recommend this in winter.

Ledge Swing is located up at Skyline Queenstown. Tickets for the gondola are available directly from the Skyline ticketing office at the top of Brecon St, which is a 5min walk from downtown Queenstown. Open daily from 10.00am - 4.00pm. (Closed Xmas Day)

Please ensure you check-in 15mins before your Swing. We recommend catching the gondola 30mins prior.

Minimum 10 years old. Children 14 and under require an adult to sign consent at check-in and accompany them on their experience. 

Between 30kg to 107kg. 

Please ensure you wear flat, secure and enclosed footwear. Winter can get very cold, so we recommend layering-up and taking a jacket.
